Project Context

The idea behind FC-HyGuide:

Guidelines for assessing technology modules (fuel cells or hydrogen production processes) or full technology systems.



Fuel cells are not yet a commercial technology and a considerable effort in research and development is ongoing to meet not only the efficiency, durability and cost targets but also environmental sustainability is required to gain significant market shares and be fully accepted by consumers. Life Cycle Assessments can increase this acceptance. Moreover, LCAs will be obligatory in this field in the future and so common rules to carry out such assessments will be necessary.
